Outstanding Roll Calls in the House

In striking contrast with the first session of the 77th Congress, before the United States entered the war, the second session produced only a few close contests in the House. At the 1941 session the 18 month draft extension was carried with a margin of only one vote; at the 1942 session the teen-age draft bill commanded a majority of 329 votes. All other direct was measures were unanimously adopted.
